Plan 3 is sadly the minimum I would suggest. If you've ever tried to buy full fat old school Project (as in, on a CD from a shop) you'd know how expensive it was and how good value this looks in comparison.

PS, some people try to cheap out and use Excel, and whilst this might work, it doesn't look great.

Look up JIRA or even Azure Dev Ops, something with an Agile sprint/planning board.

Hi,

MS Project, the pro version, that runs on desktops, has some scaling problems. If you are are working with multiple plans, owned by multiple people, and you want inter-plan dependencies... then its not great.

For example, team one is working away kn their 400 line project, with their own PM. Teams 2 and 3 similarly habe PMs and their own local plans. MS project doesn't like cross-linking (server side) between the separate plans. Even inter-plan dependencies on the same PC is dodgy (you need to have a parent-child relationship...)

There are loads of single PC project planners. But for Programmes (separate but linked projects) it's a whole other world, and I don't know which products are good for that.
